Jacques Favino #253

This guitar shouldn't exist. 

Incredible sound - best sounding Favino I have ever heard. period. Cutting clarity with broad burly warmth - classic Gypsy Favino gutsy-ness. So responsive - an absolute cannon. And impeccable dead mint original condition. 

No doubt, this is final word on Favino's for players and (especially) collectors alike. And there is not another on earth in such pristine condition. 


_____________

Only a limited number of guitar were made by Jacques Favino in his monumentally impactful career in guitar-building.

As put by John Friedrichs: "Almost every respectable guitarist in the gipsy jazz tradition since the 1950's has played a Favino guitar and so there must be something special about them."

Of the few known Favino's still in existence, this one is in exceptional cosmetic and playing condition. Classic Gypsy sound - gutsy, throaty, loud. True manouche.

If you're looking for the strativarious of gypsy guitars - this is it. Ships in Hiscox case.

Condition:
Everything on the guitar is original, original finish (exceptional!) - confirmed under black light. Only exception is the bridge (which is a Dupont Bigtone), and one tuning button is replaced - but comes with the original button (could be reinstalled). Ships in Hiscox case.


Please reach out with any questions. These guitars are extremely rare, and almost never come up for sale - especially from the dead-center of Jacques "golden era" (1965 - 1975), and there is not another on earth in such fantastic condition. Thanks!
